The Fringe Off: Boho Festival

Outfit Details
Skirt- £10 Primark Old (similar)
Crop Top- £6 Forever 21
Boots- £5 eBay (won from eBay)
Waistcoat- £3 eBay
Body Jewellery- £2 eBay
Bindi- £2 eBay 
Necklace- £1.50 Primark

Here is the third instalment of the Fringe Off collaboration, there is only 2 of us this time as Trixie has been super busy and now off sunning herself (something I will also be doing when this post goes live...yay), but don't worry she will be back in the next Fringe Off challenge. The theme was boho festival and I like the fact Cassy and I both have a bit of crochet in our outfit. One of my favourite things about festivals is getting away with over accessorising and that is exactly what I have gone for in this look. The maxi skirt is nice and flowy for when I am twirling around to the music and so I can easily put my legs in the sun if it's out. I am off to secret garden party in a few weeks and cannot wait. You doing any festivals this year? Make sure you check out Cassy's look here.

Yellow Summer Outfit ft Primark

Outfit Details

Skirt- £10 Primark
Top- Gift
Sandals- £12 F&F (old)
Headpiece- £1.50 eBay
Sunglasses- £10 Vintage (similar here)

This field was just too good not use as a backdrop, perfect for a summer feel outfit. Black maxi skirts are one of those items that come in handy every summer. Perfect for strolling down the beach, chilling at a BBQ or wearing to work to keep you cool. This one is from good old Primark, cheap and light weight material. You do just need to make sure you are not wearing patterned pants underneath otherwise that may lead to some embarrassing stares. My headpiece collection is growing. I just love how a simple piece of head jewellery can really make an outfit and with the crazy selection on eBay my collection is going to continue to grow. Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, even though the weather has been a disappointment.

Reclaimed Vintage ft ASOS

Outfit Details
Jumpsuit- Reclaimed Vintage ASOS £21.50
Hat- Ebay £3.99
Jacket- Borrowed from my sister (thanks)
Shoes- JuJu (old)

I am having a love affair with wide leg jumpsuits. I brought two last month and this is one of them (expect the other to feature soon). It's a reclaimed vintage piece from ASOS and is cut out on the back. It will be coming with me to secret garden party for sure. I love how it flows when I walk and the floppy hat just gives it that added 70s vibe.

Dirty Bones & Designs of the Year

When I meet up with Cassy a few weeks ago we visited the Design Museum and got lost in all the great designs up for the design of the year award. We started by going round the small section dedicated to design over the years. It made you think about the necessities like a syringe and what a brilliant design it was. It opened up my eyes to all the everyday designs I now take for granted.

We then moved onto the designs that had been nominated and some of these blew my mind. There was a device designed by Lyndsey Bryce and Christopher Murphy that attaches to a cows tail and then texts the vet when the muscles start to relax because the cow is going into labour....say whattttt!!! 

The one that blew me away the most, was the 3D printed arm designed by 'Not Impossible' that helped Daniel who had lost both his arms be able to eat his breakfast on his own for the first time in a long time. Technology and how advance it is becoming does scare me, but it is changing so many lives for the better and this exhibition highlighted that to me.

After spending hours at the design museum we then headed for some food. If you love a dirty burger and you are a fan of mac and cheese then you have got to visit Dirty Bones, not only is the 70's style decor a visual treat, I cannot get the Mac Daddy burger out of my thoughts. It came cooked medium with a nice helping of pulled pork, then smothered in mac and cheese and held together by a brioche bun. It was probably one of the best burgers I have had to date. Cassy and I shared a portion dirty fries that were just as pleasing as the burger. We also arrived on time to abuse the happy cocktail hour and gave a Mutt's Nuts and a Top Dog ago, both were delicious but the Top Dog had that sweetness from a cocktail that I love.

Neither of us could resist a pud so Cassy gave the Coffee Donutini a taste and I went for the Peanut Butter Cookie Cup. These also did not disappoint but just to warn you the coffee martini was really strong.

Now the decor just topped off Dirty Bones for me and made it the perfect package for a burger restaurant. There were so many things to look at, old cameras on shelfs, 70's style lamps, patterned tiles, old pinball machines and the toilets were so vintage I felt like I had gone back in time.

OOTD Details

Coat- £20 eBay
Crop Top- £5 Primark
Culottes- £3 Primark
Socks- £1:50 Primark
Shoes- £6 New Look

At the weekend I had the pleasure of finally meeting the lovely Cassy from Bang The Blitz, we have been talking for a while now and it was so nice to meet up. We visited the Design Museum and Dirty Bones (posts on both will be coming soon). We took some outfit photos in front of London Bridge and the famous Gherkin, I wish I was in London more as there are some great places to take outfit pics. I went for another pastel themed look with lilac being the main focus. Lilac is my favourite colour so I love to wear it. These shoes are also my current fav's, an absolute bargain from New Look! They had a sale sticker for £12 on and when I got to the till they were £6, I love it when that happens.

Pkai Hair Wella Instamatic Video

If you can remember all the way back to this post in January, I visited Pkai hair in Peterborough again where my friend Rox had her hair tinted with one of the Wella Instamatic colours. I have finally edited the footage I captured and put a little video together of the process Donna (the colour specialist) went through. Check it out below.
